Celebrating International Women's Day with Words of Wisdom

Celebrating International Women's Day with Words of Wisdom

Hey there, lovely mamas!

As we celebrate International Women's Day, we couldn't help but reflect on the invaluable wisdom passed down to us by the remarkable women who came before us. At Boba, we believe that the strength and resilience of women are the very threads that hold our community together. So, grab a cup of tea, wrap your little one close, and let's dive into some pearls of wisdom shared by incredible women who made us who we are.

"Be kind, always, and to everyone." - Natalia’s Mom.

Simple yet profound, Nati's mom’s words remind us of the importance of kindness in our daily lives. Whether it's a smile to a stranger or a helping hand to a friend in need, small acts of kindness have the power to brighten someone's day and make the world a better place. Teaching your kids this skill will set the tone for beautiful interactions. 

"It's better that your face turns red one time, then it turning pink a hundred times." - Natalia's Mom

Nati's advice translated from a popular Spanish saying to English encourages us to speak our truth with courage and honesty. Instead of sugar coating our thoughts or feelings, let's embrace vulnerability and authenticity, knowing that it's better to express ourselves openly than to bottle up our emotions.

"After the rain, always comes the sun!" - Sara’s Grandmother

Sara's grandmother's wisdom remind us that even in the darkest of times, there is always hope for brighter days ahead. Just like the sun breaking through the clouds after a storm, life's challenges are temporary, and with patience and resilience, we can weather any storm that comes our way.

"No soup is eaten as hot as it is cooked." - Aleksandra's Grandmother

Aleksandra's family analogy teaches us the importance of perspective and patience. Just as we must wait for soup to cool before enjoying it, so too must we allow time for life's challenges to settle before rushing to judgement or action. By keeping our cool and trusting in the process (especially when it comes to motherhood), we can navigate even the most heated of situations with grace and composure.

"Life is what you make of it: whatever you give energy to reflects what you will receive back, so be selective in how you spend that precious light of yours." - Anelise’s Mom

Anelise's mom shares invaluable advice about the power of mindset and intentionality. By consciously directing our energy towards positivity and growth, we can manifest the life we desire and attract abundance into our lives. Remember, the energy you put out into the world will always come back to you, so choose wisely where you invest your precious light (in your babes of course)!

"No matter how tough it might be to go through a hard time, something good always comes out of something unfortunate, you grow from every experience whether it be good or bad." - Anelise’s Mom

These words remind us that even in our darkest moments, there is always a silver lining waiting to be discovered. Every challenge we face is an opportunity for growth and transformation, shaping us into stronger, more resilient versions of ourselves, allowing us to take care of ourselves and the ones we love.

On International Women's Day and everyday, let's honor the wisdom of the women who came before us and continue to inspire us every day. Together, we can uplift and empower one another, creating a brighter, more inclusive future for our babies as they grow.

Happy International Women's Day!

With love,

The Women of Boba
